Tinea Versicolor: Tinea versicolor is a common infection of healthy people caused by a fungus that is commonly found on normal human skin.
There seems to be a genetic predisposition to develop tinea versicolor, the nature of which is poorly understood. This skin condition can be controlled but rarely cured.
